Apple iPhone 16 Set to Revolutionise with Game-Changing, Super-Fast Upgrade, Leaked Report Suggests

iPhone 16 rumored to feature a significant increase in AI computing cores. Generative AI capabilities expected to be introduced in the next iPhone series. Apple's product line, including iPad and MacBook, set to receive upgrades in AI computing power.

Excitement is building as rumors surrounding the highly anticipated iPhone 16 continue to circulate. While previous reports have hinted at improved cameras, better battery life, and enhanced thermal design, a new leak claims that the upcoming iPhone series will feature a significant upgrade in its processors, particularly in the realm of artificial intelligence (AI) computing cores.

According to a report from Taiwanese site Economic Daily News, the iPhone 16 will see a substantial increase in the number of AI cores compared to its predecessors. The report states that the processors in the 16 series will "greatly increase" the number of AI cores, resulting in improved performance. This aligns with previous rumors suggesting that generative AI features will be introduced in the next generation of iPhones.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has previously hinted at the company's focus on generative AI, stating that Apple is actively working on it and plans to share more details later this year, possibly during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June or the iPhone's fall release.

Interestingly, there have been reports suggesting that certain generative AI features will be exclusive to the iPhone 16 series. The increased number of AI cores predicted in the leaked report would support this claim, indicating that Apple is gearing up to deliver a truly groundbreaking smartphone experience.

Notably, the benefits of these advancements may extend beyond the iPhone. The report suggests that Apple's product line, including devices such as the iPad, MacBook, and iPhone, will undergo significant upgrades with the introduction of the new generation of M4 and A18 processors, featuring a higher number of built-in AI computing cores.

Apple's Neural Engine, which powers its machine learning capabilities, has evolved over the years. Starting with two cores in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, the Neural Engine has since grown to 16 cores in the iPhone 12. With the promise of a "greatly increased" number of AI cores in the iPhone 16, it remains to be seen whether Apple will push the boundaries further, potentially reaching 24 or even 32 cores.

The leaked report also suggests that even without the addition of new cores, the existing processors will see improvements. Apple may achieve this by optimizing software usage of the Neural Engine, a strategy it has employed in the past to enhance performance on the same number of cores.

In addition to the advancements in AI capabilities, the iPhone 16 series is expected to feature better OLED screens, an improved main camera sensor, a new microphone to enhance Siri, and an extra button specifically designed for video shooting. These developments paint an exciting picture of what Apple has in store for its loyal customers.

According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple's utilization of generative AI won't be limited to the iPhone 16 series. The company plans to leverage generative AI to accelerate software development, both internally and externally. This will be made possible through Xcode, the macOS environment used for software development across Apple's product range. Apple has reportedly been testing AI tools with its employees, with the aim of releasing them to outside developers as early as the WWDC in June.

As iOS 18 is set to be announced in June, more details about the integration of generative AI into Apple's ecosystem will likely be revealed. However, it is expected that some features will be reserved for the iPhone 16's neural engine, allowing for the full exploitation of this cutting-edge technology.
